The US launched 3D printing one-off "spy" submarines. Representatives of the defense Ministry say about the benefits of such construction.
3D printing method will be used for single submarines, which are used to move the submarine. They are on the ship in full uniform at the time of transporting, after their dive, the camera goes to the bottom. A number of representatives of the leadership of the Navy claim that this method of building ships cheaper than traditional and less time-consuming.
The main parts were printed using composite carbon fiber, and then joined them and got a case. The creation of this part of the submarine took four weeks, while when using traditional technologies should be 3 to 5 months.
The ship, which has already started to build is the prototype, the first models should appear in 2019.
